SOUTHPORT, NC (WECT)
- The City of Southport is working to
fix a few pedestrian problems by reaching out to the community for help.
Right now, Southport is
forming a pedestrian transportation plan.
The group has identified
several locations near the downtown area near N. Howe Street and Moore Street
that could be dangerous for walkers.
The city received over
$30,000 in grant money from the state to formulate a plan for development.
The city has met with
state officials and community members on two separate occasions.
The group is in the very
early stages of development but they say they want to add more crosswalks and
possibly add "refuge islands" to make the area safer.
There's a questionnaire
available for public input.
